It’s Dagenham & Redbridge v Salford City in the FA Cup on Monday night and The Pools are getting in on the action! Place £5.00 on both teams to score at boosted odds of evens and qualify for £10.00 in free bets if we bet a further £20.00 on both horse racing and European World Cup Qualifying. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £6.66 and here’s how…
In order to qualify for the two ‘Bet £20, Get £5’ offers, we need to place a bet of £5.00+ on Both Teams To Score – Yes at boosted odds of 2.00 (evens).
For a walkthrough of how to lay price boosts, please see my price boosts guide.
We can calculate our lay stake using my Matched Betting Calculator…
As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £5.78…
Place £5.00 on ‘Both Teams To Score – Yes’ @ 2.00 = Potential profit of £5.00
Lay £5.78 on ‘Yes (Both teams to Score?)’ @ 1.75 = Potential liability of £4.33
Let’s have a look at our profit/loss for the two potential outcomes…
So, no matter the outcome, we’ll make a profit of £0.66 in qualifying for our two ‘Bet £20, Get £5’ offers.
If you’d like more information about qualifying bets and how they work, please see my qualifying bets guide.
To qualify for the 2 x £5.00 free bets, we must bet £20.00 on both horse racing and a European World Cup Qualifying match between Monday 8th November 2021 and Thursday 11th November 2021 at minimum odds of 1.20 (1/5).
We can calculate our lay stakes using my Matched Betting Calculator.
Aim to lose no more than £1.00 on each of our qualifying bets
So, we’ll lose a total of around £2.00 in qualifying for our £10.00 in free bets.
Our 2 x £5.00 free bets will be credited by midday the day following bet settlement and will be valid for 7 days.
Using straightforward matched betting, we should be able to convert our free bets into 80% cash, so £8.00. If we take into account our total expected qualifying loss of £2.00 and our price boost minimum profit of £0.66, this gives us an overall minimum profit of £6.66 on this The Pools offer!
